Genealogy: Griffins / O’Sullivans

My great grandfather Tom Griffin arrived In Millstreet from Co. Mayo C1885. He married Hannah Daughter of Jeremiah O’Sulliavan. They had four children: Mary, Tom, JJ, and Paddy Griffin. Hannah Griffin died and was buried in Cahir Co. Tipperary C1939. The last Griffin was Gretta who owned and ran the pub Tanglewood on the Main Street in Millstreet about 2003.
Anyone have more information on the Griffins / O’Sullivans, or are there any other relations out there?

In Millstreet Hospital

My cousin, they tell me, doesn’t wake up much,
nor does she seem to see the green mountain
framed in the window of this chapel of ease
for travellers booked in for their long pilgrimage.
When I leave at the end of visiting-hours
a small, tidy man is sitting by the door:
stick, well-knotted tie, watch-chain, tweed jacket.
He gets to his feet, raises his hat and enquires:
‘Excuse my troubling you, but would you be
going anywhere near a railway station?’
The young smiling nurse bends over him,
and takes him by the elbow, saying:
‘Maybe tomorrow, James. Maybe tomorrow
we’ll take you to the station.’
